Anything with soul, i.e. Amy Winehouse. John Legend, Nas/Damian Marley, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Blackstar, Kanye (yeah I said it!), Marvin Gaye, Radiohead, Phoenix, Andrew Bird, The Band, Van Morrison, Esbjorn Svensson Trio (jazzy soul), Paul Simon, etc.
Anything on netflix, showtime or hbo, i.e. Game of Thrones, Homeland, Dexter. I don't often watch tv, but when I do (think dos equis guy), I watch an entire series over a few weeks, staying up till 5am, adrenaline pumping, like oh my god will happen next-style, until the series is over or I'm completely sleep deprived. Either way, #winning.
Anything spicy, authentic, or with booze on tap i.e. Tomoe, Lupa, Momofuku Ssam, Rosemary's, Cafe Orlin, Mission Chinese, Barbossa, anyplace with arepas, anyplace in flushing, or you tell me!
